Introduction to Mindfulness
Why take this course?
”Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment.” - Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness involves paying attention to our moment-by-moment experience of thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. Mindfulness also involves having an accepting and non-judgemental attitude towards our experience in the present moment. Many studies have demonstrated how mindfulness practice can reduce stress and improve emotional regulation, focus, and executive functioning.
